TOPIC: Vista DEP prevents execution
#19003
Vista DEP prevents execution 1 Year, 8 Months ago  
In order to run Microsoft's SkyDrive on my Vista SP2 PC, I had to turn UAC on (minimal setting). Rainlendar2 (2.11.1 b129 32-bit) is then prevented from running by Data Execution Prevention (DEP). DEP will not let me add Rainlendar2 to Exeptions, for some reason.

I have Googled the problem and searched this forum but I can't find a way around this. I either run SkyDrive or Rainlendar, but I can't run both.

Any ideas to resolve this would be greatly appreciated as I've used Rainlendar for years and I need to use SkyDrive sync.

if you think DEP cause this problem, you can try to turn off it, see:

Hope that help.

I changed DEP to monitor Windows processes only. When I launch Rainlendar2 it now says I don't have permission to write to rainlendar.ini, then I get the DEP warning telling me that Rainlendar has been blocked. I'm an Administrator on this system.

Windows 7 has DEP enabled by default so this is probably some Vista specific issue. I'll try to get my hands on a Vista and see if I can reproduce the problem.

I installed 32bit Vista to a virtual machine and the latest Rainlendar on it. I also enabled the DEP for all programs but there were no errors. Rainlendar was running just fine on it. I also installed SkyDrive to the computer but that did not cause any problems either. I'm not really sure why things work differently in your computer.

Just me then. Thanks for checking, anyway.

When I turn UAC back on (minimum level) and reboot, I get the following in this sequence:

1. Program Manager tells me that rainlendar2.ini is not writeable.

2. I get a "Rainlendar2 has stopped working" message:
Problem signature:
Problem Event Name: BEX
Application Name: Rainlendar2.exe
Application Version: 2.11.1.0
Application Timestamp: 513cc9d3
Fault Module Name: StackHash_b932
Fault Module Version: 0.0.0.0
Fault Module Timestamp: 00000000
Exception Offset: e850c045
Exception Code: c0000005
Exception Data: 00000008
OS Version: 6.0.6002.2.2.0.768.3
Locale ID: 2057
Additional Information 1: b932
Additional Information 2: 08394b3e941a98bd45a881bbe6e3d462
Additional Information 3: 8fff
Additional Information 4: 3da206f00c96723341e9a9aaa754851f

3. I get a pop-up DEP message about Rainlendar2 in the bottom right.

I've just tried resetting some system settings to default in case it's something obscure, but I get the same issue on reboot.

I'm not sure what to try next. Yes, I would like Windows 7 or even 8 (maybe) but it's a matter of cost and hanging on to some very useful installed programs.

I'll turn UAC off again.

Thanks again for investigating, Rainy.

Best regards,
Dave Kirk
